133: Twas The Nite Before Detecto

And there was another triathlon. Today I did 40 minutes on the elliptical, one round on the track and one lap in the pool. Though individually these are not great accomplishments the fact that I did them all within four hours was. This was all my attempt to make up for only one walk this week, and a few too many trips to the nut-garden. If only I could find a tennis game to play in. The truth is, I am quite tired now and I must get through this last post before I can get to bed.

2.5 Strips Turkey Bacon
2 Eggs Over
3 Strawberries

1/4 cup mixed unsalted nuts
1 Small Starbucks Iced Coffee w/ .5 Splenda

Lunch (if you can call it that)
6 oz Lite Strawberry Yoplait
1/4 cup Almonds (which for the record, is about 32)
7 Apricots
4 oz Jalapeno Lite Cheddar
1 Joy Stick

85% Hamburger
Leeks and Fava Beans a La Emily (greatest veg. dish ever)

Though I did not eat lightly today, I stand at the ready to visit my nemesis, Detecto tomorrow. I am hoping that I am squarely under 200lbs. I do not think I will hit my goal of 196 tomorrow. But if that little scale marker is in the 197-8 range, I will leave the office happy. If the news is good, I will go back in two weeks. If not, I might go back next Monday or Tuesday, because that would be last chance to weigh in before Ruby's birthday. Wish me luck.
